Last week we featured these crazy cork monograms, and just when we thought we had seen it all when it comes to repurposing wine bottle corks, something rather brilliant comes along. Forget being crafty with them: try something a little more practical, like silencing your cabinets! Just cut down the cork and use the small discs as mufflers.

Real Simple shared this brilliant idea for silencing cabinets: cut down your cork and use the small discs to muffle the sound. Many cabinets might already have a small pad in place, but if they're still making a bit of ruckus when you close them, replace them with something that will provide a bigger buffer.

This is also a great way to ensure small fingers don't get pinched.Try adding thicker cork than normal and when your tiny tot is past the crawling and climbing up on things stage, cut them down to something slightly thinner.
